ComhaltasLive #251 - 4: Two Hornpipes from Fiddle Player Dylan Fole

Another fiddle solo, this time by Dylan Foley, from Highland, New York. He plays two hornpipes: “Dunphy’s” and “Cooley’s” which was composed by Paddy O’Brien and is this week’s tutorial. The notation represents the tune as Paddy composed it during the 1940s — note the subtle use of the F natural note in the 5th bar of the second part. Incidentally, Dylan took 2nd place in the Under-15 fiddle at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2007 and learned much of his music from Brian Conway.

He was recorded at the 2008 Comhaltas North American Convention, held in the Hilton Hotel at Parsippany, New Jersey between the 26th and 30th of March.
